Vote for 2018 Bowls England Women Bowlers of the Year
Bowls England has today opened the voting to determine the 2018 Woman Bowler of the Year and Young Woman Bowler of the Year Award, sponsored by Taylor Bowls and Bowls International respectively.
In an exciting new format, a shortlist for each award has been compiled, with a public vote then taking place to crown the respective winners.
Bowls England Chief Executive Tony Allcock MBE said “Bowls England is delighted to announce that the Bowlers of the Year will be determined by a public vote for the first time.

It is important to recognise excellent achievement and the shortlisted players are those that stood out in a strong field.
